    Solicitors in Blyth


    Why look for solicitors in Blyth?

    Solicitors in Blyth, or elsewhere, can help us when we have disputes with neighbours, when we are suing for divorce, and so on. If you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault, then you might be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You may also be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have been diagnosed with an illness within the last three years which you can prove was contracted because of another person’s negligence.

    Personal injury compensation claims

    If you have an accident which can be proven not to have been your fault, and you were injured as a result, then you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim. Although you usually have three years in which to claim if the accident happened in the British Isles, there are some exceptions to this rule. You should find out precisely how long you have in which to file your claim by contacting a firm of solicitors in Blyth, or by calling us here at Accident advice Helpline on one of the freephone numbers below.

    If you wish to file a compensation claim for an illness against the person you believe to have been responsible for it, rather than for an injury, then you would have three years to do so from the date it was first diagnosed, rather than contracted.

    What illnesses can be caused by another person’s negligence?

    It may seem strange that an illness can be the result of another person’s negligence, but here are some examples:

    • Work-related illnesses or occupational diseases;
    • Respiratory problems if you are a tenant living in damp conditions;
    • Food poisoning; and
    • Legionnaires’ disease.
